gosql

An early PostgreSQL implementation in Go.

gosql

Example

$ git clone git@github.com:eatonphil/gosql
$ cd gosql
$ go run cmd/main.go
Welcome to gosql.
# CREATE TABLE users (id INT PRIMARY KEY, name TEXT, age INT);
ok
# \d users
Table "users"
  Column |  Type   | Nullable
---------+---------+-----------
  id     | integer | not null
  name   | text    |
  age    | integer |
Indexes:
        "users_pkey" PRIMARY KEY, rbtree ("id")

# INSERT INTO users VALUES (1, 'Corey', 34);
ok
# INSERT INTO users VALUES (1, 'Max', 29);
Error inserting values: Duplicate key value violates unique constraint
# INSERT INTO users VALUES (2, 'Max', 29);
ok
# SELECT * FROM users WHERE id = 2;
  id | name | age
-----+------+------
   2 | Max  |  29
(1 result)
ok
# SELECT id, name, age + 3 FROM users WHERE id = 2 OR id = 1;
  id | name  | ?column?
-----+-------+-----------
   1 | Corey |       37
   2 | Max   |       32
(2 results)
ok

Using the database/sql driver

See cmd/sqlexample/main.go:

package main

import (
	"database/sql"
	"fmt"

	_ "github.com/eatonphil/gosql"
)

func main() {
	db, err := sql.Open("postgres", "")
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}
	defer db.Close()

	_, err = db.Query("CREATE TABLE users (name TEXT, age INT);")
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	_, err = db.Query("INSERT INTO users VALUES ('Terry', 45);")
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	_, err = db.Query("INSERT INTO users VALUES ('Anette', 57);")
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	rows, err := db.Query("SELECT name, age FROM users;")
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	var name string
	var age uint64
	defer rows.Close()
	for rows.Next() {
		err := rows.Scan(&name, &age)
		if err != nil {
			panic(err)
		}

		fmt.Printf("Name: %s, Age: %d\n", name, age)
	}

	if err = rows.Err(); err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}
}

Parameterization is not currently supported.

Architecture

  • cmd/main.go
    • Contains the REPL and high-level interface to the project
    • Dataflow is: user input -> lexer -> parser -> in-memory backend
  • lexer.go
    • Handles breaking user input into tokens for the parser
  • parser.go
    • Matches a list of tokens into an AST or fails if the user input is not a valid program
  • memory.go
    • An example, in-memory backend supporting the Backend interface (defined in backend.go)

Contributing

  • Add a new operator (such as -, *, etc.)
  • Add a new data type (such as `VARCHAR(n)``)

In each case, you'll probably have to add support in the lexer, parser, and in-memory backend. I recommend going in that order.

In all cases, make sure the code is formatted (make fmt), linted (make lint) and passes tests (make test). New code should have tests.

    • This is a MySQL frontend (with an in-memory backend for testing only).
  • ramsql
    • This is a WIP PostgreSQL-compatible in-memory database.
  • CockroachDB
    • This is a production-ready PostgreSQL-compatible database.
